Considering that nowadays there are numerous types of malware threats in the wild, one has to protect their Mac and the network they're on using appropriate security tools.

Because a lot of Mac users will only need them for private use, antivirus developers have released free of charge versions of their well-known apps.

Such utilities are typically restricted to home use, and their users should not rely on them while using their Mac in a commercial environment.

If Mac users need additional protection, they will have to choose a paid edition of their security app.
